Lipitor is Dead. Long Live Lipitor
There are a number of pieces out today about the advent of generic versions of Lipitor, the LDL-cholesterol-lowering drug that has been the world’s best-selling medicine of all time. I’d like to highlight two pieces out today on the subject, but before that, I want to express thanks to Sen. Orrin Hatch (R., Utah) and Rep. Henry Waxman (D., Calif.) for helping to design the world’s most innovative and efficient pharmaceutical market.
All the stories you read that allege that the U.S. has the priciest pharmaceutical market in the world ignore one huge fact: generic medicines. In America, four-fifths of drug prescriptions are for cheap, affordable generic medications. In Europe, the numbers are significantly lower; according to the European Generic Medicines Association, penetration of generic medicines by volume in 2006 was decent in some countries (65% in the UK and 57% in Germany), but many are far behind: 17% in France; 11% in Spain; 10% in Switzerland; and only 6% in Italy.

I have used http://qgeneric.info/#faes for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
